Horseradish and Yogurt Crusted Salmon

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2011
Very easy and the salmon was quite moist. I did have to cook a bit longer than stated though. No one else in the family seemed impressed though (sigh) so I am not sure I will make again.

Chicken Pesto a la Lisa

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2011
My husband thought this was great; the rest of us thought only "good". The chicken broth seemed to overpower the dish and I couldn't taste the feta . I liked the ease of preparation and cooking method though. I did leave out the pine nuts to spare both the expense and the time to toast them. I think I would try adding next time. I might replace some of the chicken broth with white wine.

Spinach Tomato Tortellini

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2011
We really liked this and it was easy. I scaled the recipe up for my family. Some may prefer a little more parmesan or spinach. I really recommend this for a beginning cook. It's so easy and it looks like it was more work; close to "restaurant quality" too

Tofu Parmigiana

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2011
Loved this! Next time I plan to double the recipe and use a larger pan. In this case I will bake the tofu slices in the oven as I would have otherwise to do multiple bathches in a skillet.

Creamy White Chicken and Artichoke Lasagna

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2011
This was very good. Next time I may add some mushrooms. Maybe reduce the cream cheese and add more milk. I didn't find it dry. I wonder if the people who said so had not covered it.

Oregon Salmon Patties

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2011
The taste is 5 stars but I am a little on the fence with that because I had to add a lot more cracker crumbs for these to hold a shape. These are the best salmon patties I've ever made. My family said they taste like crab cakes from a high end restaurant. I used boneless and skinless canned salmon. I needed a second skillet as I couldn't fit 6 in one.

Spaghetti Sauce with Cauliflower

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2011
This was very difficult to rate. For creativity, definitely 5 stars. We all liked it and it is healthy too. But I don't think you can confuse it with a meat sauce. One reviewer suggested adding tomato paste and more seasoning. I would agree with that. Only giving 3 stars but maybe it should be 3.5 or 3.75. I would make it again.

Hot and Tangy Broccoli Beef

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2011
This was really excellent as written. I've made some other beef and broccoli recipes on this site but I like this one the best. Next time I may add some more vinegar; perhaps some mushrooms, carrots and baby corn. I don't think it's bland, but some may prefer more heat. I like it as is.

Zippy Shrimp Linguine

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2011
A pretty and healthy dish. My husband really liked it. To save some work, I used frozen cooked shrimp with the tails already off. The shrimp is probably a little smaller than shown in the picture , but it is tasty. I chopped the veggies before I did anything so I didn't feel rushed to put it all together at once.

Stuffed Eggplant with Shrimp and Basil

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2011
This is a meal in itself. I don't think it needs sides of orzo and salad. I served with tomatoes from our garden. This was good, but not as good as I hoped. I added salt and pepper as written, but with the 'Italian" seasoned bread crumbs and parmesan the end result was too salty for me. Next time I might experment by reducing the breadcrumbs and adding mushrooms and onion. I could not taste the basil at all. The seasoned breadcrumbs overpowered the dish.

Greek Honey Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2011
Some of the reviews ridiculously subtracted points for not being a "substitute for baklava". It's not intended to be and the submitter never said that it was. Those that use whole wheat flour in this recipe should expect different results.

Tuna Mushroom Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2011
2 cups of bow tie pasta didn't sound like much (some casserole recipes are odd in this regard), so I used the whole 12 ounce box. I kept the liquid the same, and added a little more tuna, used a larger casserole dish. I baked for 30 minutes ( instead of 40) and then added a little shredded cheddar on top ,returning to the oven a few minutes to melt. We thought it was good; wasn't dry even with more pasta. You could add some color with pimentoes and/or peas, or just serve a colorful vegetable on the side. I would make again.

Steak and Mushroom Teriyaki Bowl

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2011
Good for a quick meal. I was expecting more of a teriyaki flavor from the rice though.

Pasta With Spinach Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2011
I don't understand the high ratings on this one. It doesn't have much flavor despite the garlic. I had high hopes for this, but won't make again.

Cauliflower Hamburger Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2011
Easy and good. I had saved it because there are not many recipes that have cauliflower (and asparagas). I added a little more parmesan cheese and used the whole cauliflower. I used flavored bread crumbs (herb) and for the "non salt" seasoning I used a product that was a mix of pepper and "other seasonings". Next time I may increase the liguid a bit. Saying that it "hamburger helper" is not fair and that person probably didn't even make it.

Stuffed Beef and Black Bean Tamale Pie

Reviewed: May 24, 2011
We all liked this. However, I found the crust hard to spread, especially the top. When I cut it, it fell apart. The taste was good and it was easy, but I'm not sure I will make again.
